Ovation Names Chris Baker Winner of 2014 Huggability Award

Ovation Global DMC, the Destination Services Division of MCI, has named Chris Baker DMCP winner of the 2014 Ovation Huggabilty Award. The announcement was made at IMEX America, Las Vegas by Aoife Delaney.

Owner of Chicago Travel Consultants (CTC), Chris was nominated for being a 'perfect gentleman’ and for his ability to ‘get the job done no matter where the credit goes.’ His extensive knowledge of the Windy City is surpassed only by his passion for the city – he is regularly spotted running along the Lake Shore Drive path purely to marvel at the city in all its glory. A passion for people and teams is a must for Ovation Bear’s most huggable winners and Chris exudes this by the bucket load.

Aoife Delaney, Ovation’s Director of Global Sales and recently appointed VP of Finance for SITE Global said “Whenever I bump into Chris at industry events he always has a big smile and warm welcome. This is the first time the Huggability Award has been bestowed to a member of The DMC Network, Ovation’s strategic ally – we couldn’t ignore the overwhelming positive support and number of nominations which Chris received. The Huggability Award allows Ovation to recognise and thank the people who make our industry special and Chris is certainly one of those people.”
